Find your native plants and wildflowers May 5, 2009

flower_top42One of the easiest ways to restore balance to nature  and encourage wildlife that lawns and mulch and chemicals take away is to restore native plants to your yard. Ladybird Johnson has left her mark with the The Wildflower Center’s Native Plant Information Network that allows you to search for native plant info by plant traits or names. You can browse through the collection of 23,000 native plant images, and pose your plant question to the resident horticulturalist.

The Native Plant Information Network (NPIN) assembles and disseminates information that will encourage the cultivation, conservation and preservation of wildflowers and other native flora throughout North America. Discover more.
